you have to say about that? >> sean: romney has got to understand, they're not going to ask these questions. it's his job to bring it up as of next wednesday. here's andrea mitchell, "nbc nightly news," and she says it's ambassador rice who was sent out with false information that we now know is false, as corroborated by a scrubbed websites at the state department to lie as as did jay carney, as did secretary clinton. watch this. >> it's very unusual for the intelligence community to make this admission. politics are clearly in play. the questions being asked are why did they get it wrong? was it because there was a cover-up or was it because they were trying to avoid acknowledging mistakes this close to an election? so there is always a political context. certainly the white house today and tonight very strongly defending susan rice, but she is in the crosshairs right now of the political argument, and this is something that is going to be pursued by republicans who have been hammering away for days, saying that the administration deliberately covered it up, something the w
romney dead and move on. >> on the counter side of that, again, i hold up the front page of the "new york times" this morning with the story. >> taking a step to say it may cost obama. >> i hope this becomes an issue in the debate. i know it's not structured at all foreclosure policy related. i hope they at lease get a question in. >> all right. let's move on to your head lions and tell you what else is happening at this hour. president obama made a phone call to prime minister benjamin netanyahu widespread criticism of failing to meet with him in person this week. the white house says they discussed a range of security issues and agreed they must prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. mitt romney also speaking with netanyahu about the country that he calls the world's greatest national security threat. >> we have very much have the same interest to make sure that iran does not develop nuclear capability which would threaten the existence of israel. threaten devastation potentially in other nations of the world. and we must make every effort to prevent them from developing that nuc
a reversal of fortune and romney now has advantage over areas of foreign policy. >> bob: issues that have nothing to do with the outcome of the election. leaving that aside -- >> andrea: hold on, i have to go. 48 to 42. advantage given to mitt romney. not surprise that president obama would have been forth right instead of trying to cover his butt, maybe it wouldn't have happened. we wouldn't have four americans dead if they would have done the job. >> bob: that is one of the most outrageous statement us heard you say. if they had done the job before -- you're taking unnamed intelligence sources to make a stories based on that. >> andrea: ahead, filmmaker blamed for violence in the muslim world has been arrested. what was the alleged crime? we will tell you when we come back. hopefully bob will stop talking. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> greg: got to love "the who." nothing says presidential leadership like decisive action. that's what we saw last night with the producer of the anti-islam film arrested for violating probation. yes, this arrest has nothing to do with the fill that obama and c
of character, and out. -- character, no. what surprised me in terms of mitt romney is that there are a lot of a genuine interesting stories that you heard about the convention, the people he has helped. but there were a lot that did not get cold. the ones that were told were very serious and heartbreaking. there were a lot of stories about decency, him as a person. they are very interesting. there are decisions on an ongoing basis not to share them in a public way. >> several olympics ago, i was going to cover the event, and he happened to be there in their role of his head of the olympic games. i had never met him before, so we just had a conversation. when i said to him, more than four years ago, there is a lot of talk about your running for president and the person that answer that question was a completely different person than the person that talked about his sudden. -- his son. it is a very interesting dynamic and in a way, sometimes, i found politicians to be the opposite of that. there are politicians, so they are very out there when they are talking about something that is going t
